Brian Tromans, the man found guilty of hitting and killing a National Guardsman last year, has been sentenced in court.

Tromans was sentenced to 2 1/3 to 7 years and an additional 1 1/3 to 4 years in prison.

In December, he was found guilty of hitting and killing Master Sergeant Rudolph Seabron, a National Guardsman from Oneida County, while he was walking in Colonie. Tromans then left the scene.

Seabron's family spoke in court before the sentencing.

During his sentencing, Tromans said he did not know he hit Seabron that night and said he is "sincerely, sincerely sorry for what happened." However, his defense attorney says that apology does not admit guilt.
